middle believe in moderation. whether we do our own taxes or finances, we sit down and figure out, how do we cut a little here, save alternates there, increase revenue? so the problem with the republican party is they're out of step how most of us work on a day-to-day basis. that's something that the president has been so good at reflecting in his bigger vision of deficit reduction and the economy as a bigger issue. >>> clarence, you still here boehner say no new ref, though the american people are saying new revenue. they're saying we don't have an immediate crisis, but we need immediate cuts. why are we cutting head start and other things immediately if there's no immediate problem. a new republican leaning poll, a republican-leaning poll says just 16% of americans said the deficit and the debt with their top concerns. 38% said it was the economy and jobs. now, my question to you, clarence, americans came about about a 2:1 margin, the gop's own polls shows this. do they need a wake-up call? >> i think they're finally getting it. actually they got it in november. you look at how the e

billionaires and millionaires? forget that a new study shows paul ryan's budget could cut millionaires' taxes by $200,000. and what a coincidence, eight of the ten largest individual donors of the 2012 election were republicans. and the american people must have it wrong, too. a new poll finds 68% believe republicans favor the wealthy. senator mcconnell, this could be a problem. he's heading to palm beach this week for a fundraiser, hosted by hillary and wilbur ross. guess what? wilbur ross, say it with me, is a billionaire. did senator mcconnell think all the republicans' funny money would hide the truth about who they're really working for? nice try. but we got you. all stations come over to mission a for a final go. this is for real this time. step seven point two one two. verify and lock. command is locked. five seconds. three, two, one. standing by for capture. the most innovative software on the planet... dragon is captured. is connecting today's leading companies to places beyond it. siemens. answers. yeah? then how'd i get this...

benefits, tax benefits, can't live on a military base if your spouse is gay. so it may be a label in california, but it's not at all a label for federal purposes. that's why the analogy is not convincing. >> rev, on that point listening to chief justice roberts' questioning on that, that's something a lot of conservatives think. people who are, say, against marriage equality want to know, if you got -- if you have all the rights and benefits, because under california law same-sex couples do have that under domestic partnership, they just don't have the label marriage, pushing ted olson on that question, to me, sounded like the chief justice was pushing him hard to see how strong is his argument? is olson's argument that the label is important. that it is so important that the court should jump in. >> now, you have a lot of support for it to be legal as opposed to before. 53% support. 39% oppose. you have justice scalia and kennedy offering different views about how gay marriage affects children. that was very interesting. listen to this. >> do you know the answer to that, whether it

house voted for paul ryan's budget. the budget that would lower taxes for the rich, cut programs for the poor, and end medicare as we know it. it's unbelievable just three days ago the rnc rolled oh ut a plan to reboot the party, claiming that they will change the public's view that they only care about the rich. >> the perception that we're the party of the rich, unfortunately, continues to grow. that's frustrating. we want to lift people up from poverty. >> lift people up out of poverty? really? what about voting for ryan's budget today, republicans endorsed a plan to give every millionaire in the country a $200,000 tax cut. while slashing the safety net for the poor. doesn't sound like change to me. republicans claim they want to expand the big tent of the party. >> no words in telling us that we have to be more inclusive. i agree. >> more inclusive? really? than why did a leading gop senator say this when asked about marriage equality? quote, i'm not guy so i'm not going to marry one. doesn't sound like change to me. republicans claim they are going to reach out to groups they lost i

medicare as we know it, cut aid to the poor, and lower taxes on the rich. >> give support to what is happening. >> reward those individuals creating jobs and that's what the republican budget does. >> i'm proud to support both the republican study committee budget and the house republican budget. >> it's amazing. these are the very same ideas that voters rejected in the election. tomorrow, republicans are expected to vote for the ryan budget overwhelmingly and that has some democrats licking their chops. "the hill" reports that the democrats are ready to slam gop on the ryan budget putting this out on tut this ad before the 2 election. so go ahead, republicans, vote for that ryan budget. the american people are going to have a very different vote for you very soon. joining me now is congressman -- democratic congressman grayson and cynthia tucker. >> good to be here, reverend. >> it might be the worst one yet. how do you explain these republicans in the house? >> it's bad for seniors, bad for children, and it's bad for everyone, even white guys. it raises the debt by $6 trillion. tha

way we're going to govern and when they are saying tax cuts for the wealthy, cut everything that middle class and poor people need, let's protect private business but big government and government, period, needs to be reduced, the direction of the country is ultimately where voters are smart enough to see which way they want to he sue the country go. >> i think melissa is right. we always underestimate the importance of policy and underestimate everything else, whether charisma is the way somebody parts their hair and the republicans have lost ground among minority, among latinos, african-americans, among working class whites. five million working class whites did not vote in the last election because they were turned off by the mitt romney 47% and the republicans have sort of displayed an attitude towards government that was reflected in that and in the idea that people who may need government help at some point in their lives are moochers or takers. people hear that stuff and say, we can't vote for them. they haven't always talked that way. i think they really moved very far to
